    I just recently modded my 4.0U wii and i got homebrew and the IOS's from a guide installed. Now, I run wad manager and it goes perfectly. I Press "+" to install a wiiware game. It says its finished and installed. But when I go to the wii menu, it is not there at all!

    I would love some help,

    Thank you.

    Well, I used a guide in wi**o. B/c it was easy to follow..

    Then i tried this http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=168890 But it was confusing..

    I am using wad manager 1.3 (at first i had 1.4 then i tried 1.3; neither worked)

    All i want is to play wiiware, VC and backup discs...

    I would take the link down, they host Wii ISOs.

    At the startup of WAD Manager you're asked to select a IOS to let it run at. Did you select IOS249 there?

    Did you give each wad its own unique id?

    you don't have to give wiiware its own unique ID, as it already has one, it's not like you're creating a WII channel.

    Did you make sure it was RegionFree or dedicated to you system's region? That causes an issue and sometimes they won't show up.

    Do you have room on your wii, as if you don't it may say it installed but really didnt.

    Did you use 249 IOS to install the .wad as the other poster mentioned.

    Is the .wad from a solid source, it maybe corrupt.

    Thanks guys, but I was being dumb =_= I downloaded the DLC instead of the actual game xDD

    And one of the .wads was corrupted.

    And I had to install it in 249. Not anything else o_o.

    Thanks for the help.
